In May 1990, five wives and daughters of Anvil Chorus (Birmingham's BABS Chorus) members decided to form a Ladies Barbershop Harmony Club. After much fundraising the ladies managed to organise the first Open Evening on November 19th 1990. John and Margaret Riseborough agreed to help, and John became the club's first Musical Director. This official start to the Club was followed in May 1991 with acceptance into LABBS (Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers) and a steady trickle of new members from open evenings and word of mouth.
From a group of women who loved to sing we have developed into a charity that unite women from around the West Midlands and further afield in their mutual love of singing. In November 2015 we celebrated our 25th year and from our humble beginnings we have gone from strength to strength. We are the only Ladies Barbershop chorus in Birmingham and currently have about 55 members.
We compete at LABBS annual Convention and normally rank within the top ten.
With years of barbershop history and providing a legacy of joy and passion for singing for those women who experience the lifelong friendships on the choral risers each week as well as being part of a SCS we continue to positively impact women's lives and helps them find their voices, build confidence, enhance their vocal abilities, as well as creating lifelong friendships.
